Nyewood CE Infant School

Smiling, Caring and Learning Together on a Journey with God

In Holly Class this week...

We would like to say a big welcome to our newest classmate. He is very shy and doesn't believe in himself but we have been looking after him all week and building his confidence. He is pink, purple and VERY hairy! Holly Class would like to introduce you to Zog the alien!

As part of work on Growth Mindset, Zog has come to visit. Through teaching him, the children are learning how to keep a positive mental attitude, persevere and encourage each other with supportive language. At Nyewood we like to use phrases like "You can do it!" and "What can you learn from that fantastic mistake?" We have enjoyed sharing our learning with him and teaching him how to read, count objects carefully, write his name, rhyme and operate remote control cars and toys.

Also this week we have had great fun learning the skill of bubble painting as you can see!

Don't forget to pop in on Tuesday morning for reading and maths activities where you will be able to meet Zog and read our poster all about Growth Mindset. If you haven't already signed up for Parent's Evening please come in and grab a slot.
